With Fair & Honest Judgement He Tamed A Wild Frontier

I think it goes without saying that had dentist-turned-actor, Edgar Buchanan (1903-1979) not played the title character of Judge Roy Bean, then, this low-budget TV Western from the mid-1950s wouldn't have been half as entertaining to watch as it inevitably was.

Set in the 1880s - Judge Roy Bean is a very determined man who brings his own trademark-style of fair and honest law-enforcement to the crime-riddled territory in and around the small town of Langtry (which is located in south-western Texas).

Buchanan's often stubborn, no-nonsense character was loosely based on the real-life Roy Bean (1825-1903) who was active in his profession of Justice of the Peace/Coroner/Saloon Keeper from the years 1882-1903.
